Sector:

1 Hastings Street

Luton, Bedfordshire

Background:

The team here at Planning Insight have been working with Teo Architects on behalf of Aria Properties Ltd and Cobalt Construction, providing cohesive and strategic planning advice for a large residential development in the Borough of Luton. The scheme includes a total of 47 apartments including five large, premium duplex apartments on the top floor.

 

Objective:

The project aim was to achieve planning permission for the conversion and extension of the office building, to provide a range of dwelling sizes including premium accommodation units on site.

 

Strategy:

We developed a strategy to secure prior approval for the conversion of 37 residential units. We are also discussing with the Council an extension and refurbishment of an additional 10 premium units at roof level, before submitting a planning application.

 

Outcome:

We have successfully secured prior approval for the conversion of the office building into 37 residential units, and the planning application for the extension of an additional 10 is imminent.

 

Project highlights:

  • Secured permission for 37 residential units under the permitted development order.
  • Successful correspondence with local Council representatives.

Planning Insight have been instrumental in securing planning permission for our development in Newbury Park. From instruction, Peter and the team handled the co-ordination of consultants and the architects to ensure the scheme submitted and all supporting information was robust. They devised innovative strategies to reduce the planning risk on the project and worked tirelessly in negotiating the section 106 contributions. I will be using Planning Insight on all our projects going forward and happily recommend them as planning consultants.
